Construction Update (6/21/18)

The ramp connecting Annie Glidden Road to eastbound I-88 and the ramp connecting westbound I-88 to Annie Glidden Road are closed through July. A detour is posted directing traffic to use the Peace Road Interchange. All work at the interchange is scheduled to be completed by the end of summer.

Ramp closures are underway at the Illinois Route 251 and I-39 Interchanges through the summer. Detours will be posted. The current schedule for repairs is:

  • The week of June 18 – closure of the ramp connecting westbound I-88 to northbound I-39.
  • The week of June 25 – closure of the ramp connecting westbound I-88 to southbound I-39 and the ramp connecting northbound I-39 to westbound I-88.
  • The week of July 9 – closure of the ramp connecting westbound I-88 to Illinois Route 251.  

Please check the Daily Construction Alert for up-to-date closure information.

Customer Impacts

Ramp and bridge work will require closures and detours to safely accommodate construction and will allow the work to be completed in half the time.

Electronic message signs and construction signage will be put in place in advance to alert drivers to scheduled lane closures, traffic patterns and work zone speed limits. 

Purpose

The I-88 interchanges are being rehabilitated to continue to provide convenient access to local communities and support economic opportunities. This work is part of the Tollway’s 15-year, $14 billion capital program, Move Illinois: The Illinois Tollway Driving the Future.

Building Green

The Tollway is committed to “Building Green” and minimizing the environmental impact of construction by reducing, recycling and reusing materials. 

Work Zone Safety

The Illinois Tollway is committed to ensuring that the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) remain safe for both drivers and workers during construction, which is part of the agency’s overall commitment to roadway safety.

A 45 mph work zone speed limit will be in effect on I-88 throughout the repair project.
